Psychology involves the study of thinking, feeling, and behavior, and is a part of virtually every facet of society. The psychology major provides a valuable foundation for a variety of careers in business, industry, government, or healthcare. It is also designed to prepare students for graduate training that can lead to a professional degree in psychology.
Majors in psychology must maintain a 2.5 QPA in the major courses to be recommended for graduation.
The core sequence involves:
Psyc 101 Introduction to Psychology
Psyc 203/204/205 Majoring in Psychology
Psyc 290 Statistics for Psychology
Psyc 291 Research Methods I
Psyc 292 Research Methods II
Psyc 301 History of Psychology
Psyc 475 Psychology Internship OR Psyc 490 Senior Research Practicum
Majors also take at least seven electives in psychology.
The credentials of psychology majors are reviewed by the department at the end of the student's sophomore year. Students with a major QPA lower than 2.5 may be asked to discontinue the major in psychology.
